Storyline

For Robbing the Dead is a story of compassion - compassion toward those who may seem the least deserving of Christian love. It follows the story of Henry Heath, a law officer in 1862 Salt Lake City. Heath finds himself responsible for the well-being of a prisoner whom he despises - an impoverished French immigrant named Jean Baptiste who is convicted of robbing the graves of the recently deceased. Baptiste is exiled to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. With no one willing to look after this man, Henry Heath becomes Baptiste's sole defense against the hostile isolation of Antelope Island and the contempt of an entire community. Through his somewhat reluctant service, Heath's heart softens and his own sorrows find relief. Written by Thomas Russell

Trivia

After the first take of the scene where Henry Heath (John Freeman) roughly interrogates Jean Baptiste (David Stevens), Stevens, a "Method" actor angrily berated Freeman for not choking him hard enough. The second take had to be cut short when Stevens could not get out any lines because Freeman's choking was too effective. Stevens had to tap out rather than deliver his lines. "Turns out you can't say OK, OK, when a cowboy is really choking you" said Stevens. "From now on we will try acting". See more »

Hostess Twinkie Film making and Acting
27 October 2015 | by productionuntitledSee all my reviews

This film is nothing but SHALLOW ACTING with a bunch of Mormon 'belief system' fluff. What a waste of a good budget. Shameful. Even the great actors that were in it were made to look bad because of this junk... It goes to show that even the best actors can look bad in a bad film. Nathan H. Stevens was so uncommitted to his character. I had heard how committed he was on set but "FAKE Commitment" to show piety on set isn't truth if it doesn't convey onto the screen. The whole cast was (like Steven Buscemi described in his great film 'Living in Oblivion')... "Hostess Twinkie Actors". Also the reason this film doesn't shine was because the producers only honor you as an artists if you are mormon. The lack of truth and honor in their film making shows.
